Herbert E. Craig, Language Educator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of Spanish education.

Now retired, Dr. Craig formerly worked his way from an assistant professor to a full professor of Spanish at the University of Nebraska at Kearney from 1989 to 2013 and currently holds the title of professor emeritus. Previously, he excelled as an assistant professor of Spanish and French at Bethany College. He pursued an education at Ohio State University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in 1969. Before moving on to complete additional coursework, Dr. Craig completed service in the U.S. Army from 1970 to 1972. Once leaving service, he earned a Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin and an additional Master of Arts in French at the University of Illinois in 1985.

Motivated to success by many of his professors, such as Nellie Martinez and Professor Delmar Holman, Dr. Craig has been honored with the Pratt-Heins Foundation Faculty Award for Scholarship/Research in 2010 and is the editor of “Concordance” and “Emblems,” by Javier Nunez Caceres. Moreover, he is the author of “Reception of the Writings of Marcel Proust in Spain” and “Marcel Proust and Spanish America.” The latter title was the highlight of his career and took 20 years to complete. Looking forward, Mr. Craig plans on publishing another book on the translation from English to Spanish of Marcel Proust, who was a big inspiration for him. As a testament to his success and notable standing in the field, Mr. Craig has been featured in the seventh edition of Who’s Who in American Education and then the 57th and  58th edition of Who’s Who in America.
